Stone Gates to Ft. Negley

Gates to Ft. Negley

This stone entrance was built in the 30's in Nashville's first attempt to turn the civil war historic site into a park. The project at the time was a New Deal era Works Progress Administration project to restore the important spot from the Battle of Nashville into something the people could enjoy. World War II prevented the completion of the park and it soon closed to public access. It wasn't until 2004 that the work was finished and the park opened.
